I am 5 days post op 3rd L5 S1 Microdisectomy and concerned about some 'unusual' feelings. Apparently I was in theatre for 4 hours and then in recovery for 3 hours!! My surgeon popped in to see me in recovery to say everything went well and it was a success, I never saw him again. I had questions, his Registrar came to see me a couple of times but he could not answer my questions as he wasn't in the operation. So anyway apparently I was given a lot of drugs during my op, I was told so I would be comfortable. I had very low bp when I came out of the op and was on oxygen for 2 days, feeling nauseous and sick with ringing in my ears. Now 5 days on and I'm still getting nauseous and feeling sick and the ringing in my ears is almost constant, I'm only taking parcetamol 2 or 3 times a day, nothing else. Is this normal?? On the L5 S1 front I'm in more pain than before with new pain in my lower leg and one toe on my left foot that is doing its own thing! Wondering if I made the right decision. Any experiences with any of the above, help appreciated.
